ROUNDUP: Marsteller wins 165 crown at Journeymen

In college wrestling, returning national qualifier D.J. Fehlman went 3-0 at 133 pounds and nationally-ranked Chance Marsteller was 3-0 at 165 to highlight another strong early season effort from the Lock Haven University wrestling team as the Bald Eagles competed at the 2017 Journeymen Collegiate Classic.

Marsteller took home the 165-pound Pool A title, thanks to a 3-0 outing.

Marsteller downed Lehigh’s Drew Longo, 8-3, in the opener and pinned American’s Michael Eckhart in just 1:09 to move to 2-0. In the Pool A finals, Marsteller — ranked No. 11 — downed No. 18 Cole Walter of Lehigh, 8-1.

Marsteller is 8-0 on the season. He was 5-0 last weekend on the way to a title at the Clarion Open.

Redshirt-senior Ronnie Perry made his season debut going 2-1 in his first outing since moving up to 149 pounds. Perry is a two-time NCAA qualifier.

Fehlman went 3-0 at 133 pounds and won Pool B.
